Just got the Camera and looking forward for our next gig. My wife will be using the camera and being a event Photographer I'm sure she will do a good job.
My question is audio. I will be using 2 condenser M-Audio XLR mics. Using a line from the board would not be good as the mix used live is not the same as a studio MIX.
Should I use the mic attn to help with the sound levels. I also have a Tascam field recorder that I could bring into Final Cut Express. I understand it won't be perfect, just want something for myself and our web site 1910 Fruitgum Company
Thanks for any help
Phillip - I worked with Frank at NYCSERV a few years back (2001 - 3?), see if he remembers me. I am in northern NJ, and have an A1 and also a tascam hd-p2, mikes, etc. Let me know if you guys need help at any gigs around here, I could help you out.
